The Perifit Care is a perineometer designed to treat stress, mild-moderate urge and mixed urinary incontinence in women, by strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles through exercise. This device provides biofeedback via smart phone technology. Perifit Care is intended for vaginal use by adults.
YES. The Perifit Care is designed to treat stress, mild-moderate urge and mixed urinary incontinence in women, by strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles through exercise. Pelvic floor training is a powerful tool to treat stress incontinence, urge incontinence, and mixed incontinence. Studies have shown that about 3/4 of women with stress incontinence, and about 2/3 of women with urge or other incontinence, will benefit from improved symptoms with regular pelvic floor exercise. Since not all cases of incontinence are caused by a weak pelvic floor, getting a diagnosis with a health practitioner to determine the root cause of your incontinence symptoms will help you maximize the chances of using the most effective treatment for you.
NO. For ethical reasons, Perifit Care has not been tested on pregnant women, and therefore the impact of using a connected Kegel trainer during pregnancy is not known.
As a result, we recommend that you do your Kegel exercises without a device throughout your pregnancy, and return to Perifit Care 6 to 8 weeks after childbirth, after getting clearance from your healthcare professional.
Not right away. After childbirth is a great time to get into a regular pelvic floor exercise routine. However, we recommend that you wait 6 to 8 weeks after giving birth before using the Perifit Care, and after getting approval from your healthcare professional.
Your ability to relax your pelvic floor is as important as your ability to contract it. Perifit Care helps you train your pelvic floor by integrating contraction and relaxation phases into each game.
However, if your pelvic floor needs are focused mostly on relaxation (people with overactive pelvic floor or muscle spasms for example), we do not recommend the Perifit Care device. We advise reaching out to a specialist to get advise on relaxation-focused techniques.
We invite you to refer to this page for further explanation.
NO. As of today, even though we are very much aware of pelvic floor disorders such as vaginismus, dyspareunia, or vulvodynia, the Perifit Care is not intended to treat these conditions. We recommend you reach out to a pelvic healthcare practitioner to explore other options.
Possibly. After a hysterectomy, it's essential to ensure that the internal organs are supported, your bladder and bowel function correctly, and that the risk of having a prolapse is minimized. However, you should first get your surgeon's approval. The timing of your recovery and the appropriate exercise volume will vary from one woman to the next according to the surgical procedure and overall hysterectomy recovery.
NO. Unfortunately, Perifit Care doesn't have an effect on endometriosis or reduce the pain associated with endometriosis.
Yes, you can use Perifit Care with an IUD (or coil). Our Kegel trainer is covered by a sleeve of medical grade silicone which prevents any contact with internal parts, so entirely safe to use with a coil/IUD.
YES. Perifit Care communicates with your device using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). BLE waves are 1000 times less powerful than those emitted by a regular 4G smartphone. As of today, BLE is even used in pacemakers and other implanted devices.
However, as a precaution, we recommend asking your specialist for confirmation.

No. The Perifit Care is a medical device designed to help you strengthen your pelvic floor. It does not vibrate.
No. The Perifit Care does not provide electro-stimulation. When you voluntarily contract your pelvic floor muscles, the force sensors in the Perifit Care allow you to visualize your contractions within the app.
Some people with a very weak pelvic floor (due to injury or an underlying condition) may benefit from electrostimulation before being able to perform voluntary pelvic floor muscle contractions. If you think this may appy to you, you should reach out to a pevic healthcare practitioner.
In part. The Perifit Care is a biofeedback device which measures the force of your pelvic floor muscle contractions, whereas the devices used by pelvic healthcare practitioners often measure the electrical activity within the muscles (known an EMG). Both can allow you to visualize the activation of your pelvic floor muscles. The benefit to the Perifit Care is that it allows you to exercise at home while having fun playing the games.
However! The Perifit Care is not intended to diagnose any medical condition, and does not replace an exam and follow-up with a qualified healthcare provider.
Congratulations on getting your Perifit Care! You are one step closer to a stronger pelvic floor.

Perifit Care meets all relevant safety standards.
- 100% waterproof design - Medical-grade silicone to prevent allergies and irritations - BPA and Phthalate free, tested for biocompatibility - Independent quality testing of each Perifit Care before shipping - Barcode traceability throughout production and shipping.
None! Perifit Care is a biofeedback device and you are the one contracting voluntarily your pelvic floor muscles.
What's more, the Bluetooth technology used is BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy), which is very common among medical products.
BLE technology has not been found harmful to humans and fetuses by scientists and is 4,000 less powerful than your smartphone for example.
Perifit Care leverages non-ionising Bluetooth Low Energy waves from its tail which remains outside of the body at all times.
BLE allows information from your device to be sent to your smartphone using very little power. This technology is routinely used in the healthcare industry for wireless sensors including heart monitors, glucose monitors, and blood oxygen monitors, and is also used in everyday smart devices like an Apple watch or a smart fitness band.
